Wisdom Along the Way: Camino Card Deck

The card deck I created after completing the Camino de Santiago this summer with my 10 year old son, Sam, is here!

Each card has a beautiful image from along the Way.  The other side has a bit of wisdom that I needed or learned along the way.  These bits of wisdom can prove useful anywhere along this journey of life.




There are so many ways these words inspired me along the Camino, but I'm amazed at how they remind me of what I can be doing in my everyday life.  My hope is that all who encounter these cards will have a similar experience.

Decks are $20 for the complete set of 54 cards.  If you're local email me, and you can save the shipping charge of $5.

Cards for the Camino


To all the amazing people who follow my art, I'm not sure if I've told you about the epic adventure my son, Sam, and I are taking this summer.  In honor of our "big" birthdays--50 and 10, we are going to hike the Camino de Santiago this summer.  It is a 500 mile pilgrimage across northern Spain.  You can follow our preparations HERE.

So it's an enormous undertaking that I do not take lightly.  There is physical, emotional, and spiritual training.  Then there is the financial part of it.  While the trip is relatively affordable for 2 months of hiking, the bills at home continue, even when we aren't there.

We are hoping that art and creativity will provide for us as we do our part.  Sam is making marbled notecards to provide him with spending money on this trip, and I am making hundreds of cards with quotes and photos of my art and other goodies like handmade paper collages to make this possible.

I'm holding a party to share hundreds of cards with the world, so if you would like to attend that on January 13, here is the info.  I'd love to have you join the fun, and even bring friends.  If that doesn't work, but you would like to support our big endeavor, you could host your own party of cards.  Your friends can make a card and then see what I have to offer.

If you want to order cards, go HERE!  There are quotes in sets just waiting for you!

I'm also creating new paintings every week {or at least I intend to create this way! } These paintings and other creations will be super affordable.  They will be listed on my blogs and facebook pages and instagram--which I will start to use more effectively!!!

Basically anything you buy from me in the next 6 months will support this once in a lifetime trip!

Coconut Macaroons Available for Just a Few Weeks



Back by popular demand!
Holiday season coconut macaroons!
Get them before they are gone!

Why macaroons?

Most of my income streams dry up between mid December and mid January, but the bills keep coming.  So I was thinking about food I make that people think is super delicious, and I'm going with my coconut macaroons.  People LOVE them!  Even some people who don't think they like coconut like these.  These are gluten free, but they are not vegan.

So here is what I'm doing:

  • For the next month I am baking and selling my super delicious coconut macaroons packaged in a large Chinese food container with some colorful tissue paper.  
  • The price is $10 for a baker's dozen.  
  • Local delivery/pick up can be easily arranged
  • I will ship anywhere in the continental U.S. for $4 a box.  

ORDER NOW and leave a note about what day you want delivery or a shipping address
Thank you!
